Texans Star J.J. Watt Threatens To Sit Out If This NFL Rule Proposal Is Approved
Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports
One rule the NFL is considering for the 2020 season due to the pandemic is players wearing face shields. This is something Houston Texans star J.J. Watt has a strong opinion against and would cause him to sit out...
quote:

“My second year in the league I thought it’d be cool, I put a visor on my helmet,” Watt told ProFootballTalk. “I was like, ‘It looks so cool, I want to put a visor on.’ I had it on for about three periods of practice and I said, ‘Take this sucker off I’m going to die out here.’ . . . So now you’re going to put something around my mouth? You can keep that. If that comes into play, I don’t think you’re gonna see me on the field.”

Hahahahahaha, yea ok JJ Watt yea you’re gonna walk away from a big arse pay check all year because you don’t like Personal Protective Equipment. He sounds like the red neck oil drilling rig roughneck or roustabout that were threatening to drag up (quit) when the Company Man started forcing PPE to be worn constantly. Not a one of them quit they wore the PPE and complained.

Funny thing about stricter PPE rules is that it never brings down incidents or recordables. Safety is a personal attitude, administrative/engineering controls rarely help. They were justified in their complaining.

I don't know if y'all have noticed this, but JJ Watt is a huge attention whore. He's just saying things to get attention.

Not through that helmet.

Sounds like a stupid rule. But JJ is all talk and as usual desperate for attention. Put the face shield on his helmet, he’ll get in his feeling over it, and then 2 weeks later create a Twitter/Insta PSA on why everyone should do the right thing and wear a face shield

I’d sit out too. Pointless to have them

It really is. Masks plus social distancing is the key. When you’re literally tackling someone what’s the point

Shut it down! I would hope the owners and league were smart enough to put a cold claus in these idiots contracts. Let him sit "tuff" guy.

amazing some of you still don't get it. he's wouldn't just sit. He would get "injured" in the 3rd or 4th practice. He's not likely to get through the first game uninjured any way.
